Sophia Floersch has undergone surgery after fracturing her spine in the F3 Macau GP on Sunday

F3 driver Sophia Floersch spent at least seven hours in surgery on Monday, after fracturing her spine in a horrific airborne crash in Sunday’s Macau Grand Prix.

The 17-year-old, driving for Van Amersfoort Racing, crashed over the barriers at the Lisboa corner at high speed, straight into an area populated by photographers and race marshals.

Her car appeared to clip a rival on the way into the low-speed corner, careering past other cars before being launched off a kerb towards barriers on the other side of the course.
